With stunning views overlooking the City, Barnsdall Art Park welcome Angelenos—21 years and older (this includes babies) —to sip wine, picnic and watch the sunset for another not-to-be-missed season of wine tasting at the iconic cultural destination. Marking its 9th season and attracting sellout crowds, the renowned Barnsdall Friday Night Wine Tastings—the Foundation’s signature fundraising event—returns to the hill on June 9th and continues through September 22nd. Music will be presented by KCRW’s DJ Marion Hodges, DJ Ed Mattiuzzi (aka youNGNoon) and ongoing partner, Silverlake Wine will curate their fine selections of boutique artisanal wines. There will be a number of rotating food trucks on hand as well as micro pop-ups by Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream and The Cheese Store of Silverlake.
Taking place on the West Lawn, from 5:30pm to 8:30pm, tickets cost $35 for a tasting and $50 for a tasting + tour of Frank Lloyd Wright’s UNESCO-nominated Hollyhock House with tour times at 5:45, 6:15, 6:45, 7:15 p.m. There will be a brand-new merchandise table with Barnsdall-centric swag available for purchase, including branded wine-tasting Tees, signature wine glasses, as well as savory and sweet snacks. While families of all ages are invited to enjoy the Park, picnic, and dance, due to legal regulations, only those ages 21+ will be allowed inside the fence for the Hollyhock House Tour or the wine tasting portion. The event supports the Park’s capital projects, art programs, historic renovations and gallery exhibitions.

As many of you know, parking is limited at Barnsdall and free spaces on the Hill often fill up within the first half-hour of any event. There is off-site parking at Kaiser Permanente at 1549 Edgemont, about a 5 minute walk to the wine tasting. If you arrive after 6pm we’d suggest going straight to the Kaiser Edgemont Lot. You can also get here via Metro or Bus to the Vermont/Sunset red line station. We of course encourage walking, biking, and carpooling!
No refunds. In the event of weather or event cancellation, a rain check will be provided for the next Barnsdall Friday.
